Theese: I think jamesst only meant that you possibly can play BO2 online, but only ever from a straight backup of the original game disk, not the pirated version which has a modified EBOOT ? I don't know this for sure, I am asking for jamesst to clarify the point.
Jamesst: Is there some simple way I can check for all other games to be sure that the EBOOT was not modified, for example if I am downloading DUPLEX games and other torrented PS3 games? Perhaps a ps3-homebew tool exist for windows that queries a database of EBOOTS? I don't know anything about this. For comparing an EBOOT checksum etc ???. That seems very useful.
Theese: Trophies. I was under the impression from the MM Stealth Release notes that the Stealth version will not show on the trophies screen. Perhaps I was wrong about that particular assumption of mine?
Another point: I do agree what you are saying Theese is correct that the CFW filesystem will always be different in some detectable way. Yet it is only a problem if the OFW code / PSN server queries return that specific filesys data back to Sony servers in the communication session.
My PS3 is still broken right now. But I have been planning to take TCP dumps with Wireshark, to compare exactly the data packets send back to Sony. Ie TCP dumps comparing both the 4.30 OFW, and 4.30 Rogero CFW v2.05. This seems like the only way to avoid any uncertainty... otherwise we are all just guessing and speculating if that really matters or not regarding Sony's current CFW detection / ban risk. Of course, knowing our luck Sony might decided to release a brand new OFW anytime soon.
Well Duplex never mods eboot of games and almost all games are the original backup when you download it, the eboot patch is just given in description like always
and of course, I had the original disc of BO2 and I was playing on CFW without getting ban. Playing with BO2 backup is fine as long as the eboot isn't patched
Right now i'm ban because I didn't follow all I said above, like being logged in and running Rogero for over 10 hours (Yep forgot my PS3 was on, and it had to be on multiman). since i've done that, i'm banned. Plus, I wasn't using the Stealth version at all
